As no one ever relies on actual evidence for their religious beliefs, yours is as good a reason as any.

It's a religion. You either believe or your don't. If you believe in the Qur'an and Muhammad, then by all means go for it but make sure you read up on the Muslim religion, what's expected and what's not, what's culturally expected and what's not. It's not something you should take lightly, since it doesn't sound like something his family takes lightly. You would also have to be willing to raise your children in Islam, which would be different in some ways to how you were raised. Read up on some of the beliefs of Islam and see what you think. Also read up on the expectations of being a Muslim woman. Make an informed choice on your life and do not convert for nothing. For the record, in Islam, a Muslim man is able to marry a non-Muslim woman, though culturally it may not be expected, so, don't let them use that as an excuse either.

If you want to be subjected to this medieval patriarchal religion and culture then yes, if not then run away. Be honest to yourself and others, if you don't believe then don't convert and don't do it because "i need something to beleive in". If they can't accept you for who you are then they're not worth your time.
Answer #5 | 23/12 2013 04:11
Your choice, you can convert officially but if you can't take islam in your heart it won't mean anything.

u can be a muslim if and only if u firstly believe in the shahadah i.e. there is no god worthy of worship except Allah and prophet mohammed peace be upon him is his messenger. if u do not believe this a one hundred percent u cannot become a muslim. if u do believe it, den u say it in arabic n u r a muslim just as any other. but please bear in mind without the belief u cannot b one and even of u did get married, if u r not a jew or a christian, ur marriage wud not b recognised as per islam. hence i recommend u try to understand wat islam is and why it sez the things that are a part of it. if it makes sense n u accept it, Alhamdulillah. if u dont, den please let the relationship go. if u need help to understand islam u can ask questions to me. its [email protected]

Answer #8 | 23/12 2013 04:08
no. ask him to leave his family if he really loves you
Answer #9 | 23/12 2013 04:05
No, have a civil marriage. And if he and his family cannot respect that, dump him. You cannot force yourself to believe in nonsense. And if things didn't work out, they would literally have you killed for attempting to de-convert. After all the crime for apostasy in Islam is death. Is that a good risk to take? I would advise you to not take that risk.
Answer #10 | 23/12 2013 04:05
Go ahead, it's your life. You're free to do what you wish with your mind, body and future. Good luck to you if changing everything you believe, not for you but for a guy, is what you want.
Answer #11 | 23/12 2013 04:06
If you decide in the future that you don't want to be a Muslim anymore, he's obligated to cut your head off. The penalty for apostasy in Islam is death. I'm not making that up. You can ask any Muslim. They'll admit it. You should be more scared of that.

Answer #13 | 23/12 2013 04:06
Do not start trying to believe in something you will never truly believe.
Answer #14 | 23/12 2013 04:11
If his religion and family get in the way now, entering into both for marriage reasons looks like a disaster.
Answer #15 | 23/12 2013 04:12
Sure!!!!!! Marry him and have to obey his mother and him , and his Dad, and his brothers... If you don't he might cut off your nose (google women whose noses have been cut off for talking back to muslim husbands)
Answer #16 | 23/12 2013 16:35
Islam doesn't forbid a Muslim man from marrying a non-Muslim woman. So basically it is his family who doesn't want you to marry him unless you are Muslim. I think you should make the choice for yourself because its a life changing one. Read the Qura'n and pray about it. Honestly you are better off not listening to what people say about the religion whether they are Muslim or not because they really mess things up (know this from experience). Stick to the Quran and Sunnah (Prophets words and actions) and you will be fine hopefully. Hope you have a good journey and peace be with you.
Answer #17 | 23/12 2013 19:48
The two things that make for a solid marriage are shared culture/ethnicity and shared religion. I friend of mine converted to Islam for her Muslim fiance (a very handsome engineer) and they had a long, happy marriage. You didn't say if he's an American or an immigrant. If he was born here, he knows the challenges you're facing. You need to talk to someone at a mosque to get an idea of what Islam is and what would be expected of you. There are many different kinds of Islam and I'm sure that you'd be expected to convert to the "flavor" practiced by your boyfriend and his family. Learning more about it will answer your questions and lower your anxiety level. You don't have to make a life-time commitment to Islam to learn more about it, about how it's practiced and about how it would obligate you in your relationship/marriage.
Answer #18 | 24/12 2013 21:39
I'm Christian and my boyfriend is Muslim. It's never been a problem, his parents/friends are really cool about everything. Maybe his parents should be a little more open. Let people believe in what they want to believe in. Are you really ready to convert for a marriage? And are you so sure that the problem starts and stops at what your religion is?

[email protected] cut off noses? that was so silly:D anyway, you could email me if you want to talk more about this [email protected]
Answer #22 | 23/12 2013 08:01

Answer #23 | 23/12 2013 04:21
Absolutely not!!!!!!!
Answer #24 | 23/12 2013 04:28
No, since i believe that islam is a false religion started by a false prophet Muhammad. You better believe in Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, who died on the cross to pay for our sins, and then was raised from the dead by God, appeared to His disciples and then after 40 days was raised into Heaven. Whoever believes in Him and obeys His commands will enter God's Kingdom of Heaven. Others, who include muslims, are not admitted, but instead will go into the burning lake.
Answer #25 | 23/12 2013 04:30
Investigate what is required of Muslim woman, bearing in mind that his mother is and will still command him to do as the family or she wants. If you consider that you would be contect being 1 of a number of wives (as Muslims can have more than 1 wife), go for it.
Answer #26 | 23/12 2013 05:08
